Welcome Students and Parents,
I have created this site in an effort to continue communication between the parent, student, and teacher. The site is updated at least once a week. The site will have important dates, information for the week, spelling words, and other activities for students.
We are currently learning about Central America. We have spent this week presenting our culture projects. Parents ar invited into the classroom next week to view the web pages created by the students.
Spelling: There will be three spelling activities due this week.
Reading: We are reading the story The Singing Man. We are working on the skills of cause and effect, outlining,and prediting outcomes.
Science: We will be doing experiments with soil. I have asked students to bring in soil samples from their areas, any potting soil from home, or other types of soil that they might have.
Writing: We will be incorporating the 6-Trait writing into our social studies research papers. We will also begin writing a persuasive paper.
Math: This week we are dividing two fractions. There will a test on Tuesday, 02/12/02.

02/13/02-02/15/02-Focus Lab presentations.
Your work is neat; mine's such a mess.
I rush too much; you do your best.
You get straight A's; I get all C's.
I'm Tom Sawyer; you're Socrates.
You love library; I race to gym.
I'm elastic; you're a straight pin.
You're a violin; I'm a tamborine.
But we're the best friends
This school has ever seen!
